The project marking the 25th anniversary of the British Council aims to promote closer cultural relations between the United Kingdom and Vietnam, running from 2018 to 2020
Heritage of Future Past delivered through the British Council’s Culture and Development will engage with the music and film heritage of Vietnam, with particular focus on aspects that are under threat, disappearing, or under-represented situations.
The organizer will work with a wide range of communities across Vietnam, including cultural heritage agencies, institutions of the central and local governments, arts and cultural organizations, and individuals and private organizations to focus on research, documentation, conservation, training and capacity building, experimentation and innovation, advocacy and education, and the re-imagination and revitalization of cultural heritage assets in contemporary practices.
The project will also promote more dynamic understanding and enjoyment, as well as use of, heritage assets in everyday life in the communities and in artistic, curatorial, and educational practices.
